Bushnell Supports Folds Of Honor B ushnell Outdoor Products’ 2011 gift to Folds of Honor Foundation totals $200,000. Since 2010, Bushnell has contributed nearly $300,000 to the foundation. Founded in 2007 by Oklahoma Air National Guard Maj. Dan Rooney, Folds of Honor provides post-secondary educational scholarships to the spouses and children of those disabled or killed during U.S. military service. “Thanks to support from partners like Bushnell, 2011 was a monumental year for Folds of Honor Foundation. Last year alone, we were able to double the number of scholarships provided, and as a result of that incredible momentum, we hope to provide 1,000 scholarships in 2012,” Rooney said. In 2012, Bushnell is continuing its product partnership with Folds of Honor with two exclusive golf laser rangefinders. A portion of the proceeds from each Patriot Pack sold will be donated to Folds of Honor. For more information about Bushnell, visit www.bushnell.com or call 1-800-423-3537.

Windham Weaponry Begins Operation A group of Maine investors announces the formation of a new company, Windham Weaponry Inc., to manufacture and sell rifles. Richard Dyke, chairman, president and CEO, leads the company. Dyke was chairman of Bushmaster Firearms and principal owner from 1976 to 2006. “The investors saw an opportunity for the new company when Bushmaster decided to relocate to another state and lay off all its employees, many of whom had as many as 25 years of experience in rifle manufacturing,” Dyke said. Windham Weaponry will be located in the Windham Business Park, the former Bushmaster site. The company plans to start production in July with its first shipment in September. According to Dyke, Windham is hiring about half of the former Bushmaster employees, with plans to add many others before the end of the year. For more information, visit www.windhamweaponry.com.
